A man from Naugatuck, Connecticut faced charges because he left his small terrier in his parked car on a 100-degree day.
An animal control officer noticed the panting pooch named Bingo locked inside a car on the Walmart parking lot after officers received several complaints.
THe officer was able to determine that the temperature inside the car was between 99.5 degrees and 102.5 degrees using an infrared thermometer.
46-year-old Andre Rodrigues, the owner let the poor dog inside the car for a minimum of 26 minutes, with those high temperature numbers it was a miracle that Bingo was saved.
The police of Naugatuck, are taking this incident as an example to remind people that leaving a dog inside their car during summer days can end up fatal.
We are so happy that Bingo is saved.
